I know in the song there is no 13th day of Christmas but in a Dickens' Christmas there is (heheh), so today we broke out our decorating abilities and made sugar cone Christmas trees. But before we made our candy Christmas trees, a good old fashion ride in the laundry basket was in order.
Dad's are the best!
Who knew she actually played quite a long time in the laundry basket, she liked putting her hands through the holes
After a fun came of laundry basket go cart and some breakfast the kids pretended to be sleeping in Mom and Dad's bed.
Sharing his "B" with his sister, he specifically asked me to put it on her too, such a nice boy!
Once Sydni was down for her morning nap it was time for Carson and Mom to make our sugar cone Christmas trees.Our trees didn't turn out quite a pretty as the pictures I have seen online, but they were wonderfully unique in their own special ways.
Being a laid back person comes in handy when powder sugar is involved, in fact it ended up on the floor rather than in the mixing bowl, but no worries it cleans up easily. Love the action that I was able to capture with the powder sugar, just love this new camera.
And yes I know you might be asking, "Why in heavens name did I let him hold the food coloring?" I was taking a risk and it paid out, not a single drop outside the mixing bowl.
Pretty proud of himself
Have to test the frosting of course, and he approved.
On to decorating and of course eating along the way, frequently.
1st: Looking glass
We had lots of fun and such an easy activity for little hands, I think if we had attempted making a ginger bread house it would never have made it past its foundation without being smashed, crushed, and eaten.
Additionally we found out little Toby stuck in the window after returning home from the North Pole, silly little elf.
